Program and Schedule


The Boston Women’s March for America will convene on Saturday, 11 a.m. sharp January 21, 2017. Marchers will gather on the Boston Common’s “Carty Parade Ground” on corner of Beacon and Charles Streets.


We are planning a 1 mile route from Boston Common to Commonwealth Avenue, turning on Clarendon and back to the Common.


On this day after the Inauguration, people from Boston to Anchorage will march for American ideals in the spirit of democracy. Women are leading the march, and men and children are welcome and encouraged to attend.


The program showcases nationally recognized advocates, performing artists, thought leaders and the passionate voices of community leaders who speak to the issues reflected in our mission statement.


Portable lavatories and support for marchers with disabilities will be available. There will be no warming areas.

Learn more about accessibility at the March.

Harriet Tubman guided over 300 people to freedom through the Underground Railroad. Although Tubman never lived in Boston, she had many connections through a network of abolitionists. One of the founded the Harriet Tubman House as a settlement house for black women. The house has since relocated, but it still exists today as part of the United South End Settlements program.
